The five-door Geely Emgrand GS after restyling will be positioned in China as a compact crossover Emgrand S. It is interesting that the letter “S” in this case does not mean Sport, but “sexy”, “smart” and “surprise “(Surprise). The launch of the model in China is scheduled for April 26, so there are not enough pictures and information yet.
Chinese name – Dihao S. “Esca” is shorter than the original hatch by 10 mm, the other dimensions are the same: 4430? 1833? 1573 mm, between the axles 2700. The ground clearance is 180-193 mm. Suspensions – McPherson and beam. Tires: 215/50 R17, 225/45 R18.
The “waterfall” grille is considered a signature of “design 4.0” and is reminiscent of the Xingrui sedan, not the flagship Xingyue L (KX11) SUV with a concave grill.
Seven-inch digital tidy and electronic “handbrake” were in the past. Instead of a built-in display (10.25 inches), there is now a suspended touchscreen (size not named), so the front panel and center console have been reorganized, and the start button and emergency gang are inscribed in the keyboard. The variator lever is new, the multifunction steering wheel is the same.

Emgrand S / Dihao S will only be offered with a 1.4 petrol turbo four (141 hp, 235 Nm), a CVT and front-wheel drive, since a 1.5 turbo turbo (177 hp, 255 Nm) with a moderate-hybrid system and seven-speed “robot” for the crossover is not certified, as well as six-speed “mechanics”. The fate of the electroversion is unclear. A similarly equipped GS hatchback now costs 90,800–96,800 yuan ($ 13,900–14,800).
